Car review: The Citroen C4 Picasso
In a quest to find some of the very best value for money vehicles on the road right now, we are to take a look into multiple car segments over the course of the next few weeks to find which models offer the best value for money and modern day features for a new vehicle. Today in our first review, we are jumping into the MPV (Multi purpose vehicle) segment and the vehicle that has come to our attention today is the most recent C4 Picasso model from Citroen. The C4 range has been a strong seller for the car maker from France. We have seen the C4 Cactus do particularly well since going on sale last year. The Picasso variant of C4 also went on sale last year but how good is the car for the money you could be set to spend on one?.
Key features and rivals of the Citroen C4 Picasso
Before jumping into the specifications to come along with the car, we have had a look around and seen what kind of vehicles offer similar features and strong competitiveness for the C4 Picasso. This MPV much like others on the market is known for offering more seating than hatchback models. With that being said, the Kia Carens, Volkswagen Golf Sports Van and the Grand Scenic from French rival Renault can all be considered to be three of the biggest models gunning for the top spot against the Picasso.
What components separate the C4 from its competitors though?.Three petrol engines are offered aswell as two diesels. A starting capacity of 1.6 litres leading up to the top 2.0 litre engine are on offer for both variants with the options of either sixteen or eighteen inch alloy wheels also up for the taking. The rear lighting setup consists of LED 3d effect lights. LED light strips can be found at the opposite end at the front. A chrome trimming can also be found along the bodywork of the vehicle. The interior of the car is very luxurious offering both driver and passengers a leather interior both in Black and Tan Brown. A twelve inch, panoramic HD touch screen is one of the biggest attention grabbers inside and carries a sat nav system within it. The other neat feature that the screen displays is also the rear view camera. Citroen have also spared no expense when it comes to in car safety. They have included lane departure warning assistance,active cruise control and active seat belts are also to be found.
The looks and prices of the C4 Picasso
The C4 Picasso is offered in eight colour options. Red,White,Black and Silver are just some of the options that give the vehicle a very neat finish. As far as value for money is concerned, prices kick off from £17,760 with trim levels coming in the plenty offering more and more equipment. The prices for trim levels do however continue to rise.
